I find most of them not funny today, but some have nostalgic value! And some are just like slow, agonizing torture... like the Cosby show... damn that's dire!

my personal favorites -

Family Ties
Growing Pains
Coach
Married With Children
Roseanne
The Facts of Life
and last, but not least, Valerie/The Hogan Family - everything Jason Bateman touches turns to gold.

The Wonder Years is absolutely among the best shows ever made, but I personally wouldn't classify it as a sitcom.

Hey, everybody, there is a British situation comedy from the very early 80s that nobody has even mentioned up until now -- Metal Mickey! "Boogie! Boogie! Boogie!"

So many to choose from...some of my favorites that spring to mind are:

Rosanne
ALF
The Cosby Show
Married with Children
Who's the Boss
Silver Spoons
Bosom Buddies
The Wonder Years

...But my absolute all-time favorite would have to be "Perfect Strangers." That was easily the funniest and probably most watched show for me in the mid to late 80's. And the show is just as enjoyable to watch now as it was then. Bronson Pinchot as Balky is, of course, hilarious in pretty much every episode. But I also get a good laugh out of his cousin Larry played by the very funny, somewhat under-appreciated, Mark Linn-Baker. Pinchot & Baker were so funny together on this show. Probably one of the funniest comedy duos on the small screen, that i've seen anyway.

Sitcom as I see it, is 22 min. eps. with laugh track!

Am I wrong??

Not all sitcoms have a laugh track. In fact, the 1970's up to mid-1980's were the start when "canned" laugh tracks were dying out. The trend of having a sitcom taped before a live studio audience started with "All In The Family".

In the 80's, I suppose the short-lived comedy show "Police Squad!" was the exception, because they used neither a studio audience or a laugh track at all.

Nowadays, I can't think of any show currently on TV that uses a laugh track anymore.
